Much ado about nothing

Yes, it was entirely justified to bring down this encroachment. There have been many temples that were brought down and this is not an isolated incident. It is interesting to note that Muslim community was in fact prepared to blow this issue as they had more that 50 woman and children ready at the demolition site to use them as human shield. Muslim community need to learn to live as ordinary citizens just like Hindus and desist from demanding special treatment.

Muslim community need to come out of a ghetto mind set and need to get along with the mainstream. They need to learn to live as ordinary citizens just like Hindus and desist from demanding special treatment as they have been doing from time to time.

Then, there is the UPA government in the centre to whom Muslims are vote bank and it's trying to take mileage out this episode. With atmosphere like this, I don't think this will be the last of such incident.

We need real secular parties (not the kind of secularism which Congress, CPI, Janata Dals practise). Until, such parties exist, there will be communal riots and peace loving Indian citizens will suffer.

As of National Minority Commission, it should be shut down will immediate effect. It does nothing but add fuel to such law and order issue which then become communal in nature. Every human life is important but given a priority, rioters life have very little compared to law-abiding citizens.

Everyone has right to protest but it has to in peaceful manner. What police has done in Vadodara was probably their last resort. My humble request to National Minority Commission to looks at right violation of Kashmiri pandits in J&K.
